(This review is for the English-language "Vienna's Secrets - Backyards & Mysterious Locations" tour) One guide, Utte (I hope I got her name right), managed to bring the right mix of fun and historical facts without having to impression to be back in the history lesson. The tour itself takes you, as the title says, to beautiful and very quiet places in busy Vienna. Recommended!

Perfect 2-hour tour of Vienna !!!

For our 50s together, my girlfriend and I wanted to explore our beautiful hometown for a whole day like tourists, and we did. We have also booked this tour for our program. For every man and woman, this tour is TOP! Our guide, a humorous and nice man with great knowledge about Vienna, led us through the alleys and backyards and made us laugh with lots of funny stories. You really see a lot and get a great insight both historically and from the country and its people. We can only say: "It's worth it!

Leuke stadswandeling door Wenen met gids Herbert. Klein groepje (samen met Herbert waren we met z'n drieën , dus het was een soort private tour).In een mooi tempo langs de belangrijkste plaatsen van de binnenstad van Wenen. De informatie die gedeeld werd was begrijpelijk, soms lekker lachen met een grap tussendoor. De tour ging ook echt over de historie van de stad en was zeker geen 'sisi-tour', daar zijn genoeg ander uitstapjes voor. Tijdens de tour zijn we op mooie dingen gewezen, bijzondere architectonische punten aan gebouwen, prachtige doorkijkjes van het ene naar het andere gebouw en een aantal typische Weense woonhofjes, kerkjes, kloosters en dat soort dingen. Het is echt wel een aanrader om deze 2uur durende wandeling met Herbert te doen. Daar heb je de hele dag plezier van.
